Nearly 18mths into my IVA. Cant lie its been tough, but a necessary evil and lessons being learnt.
Quick question. Checked credit reports, and few defaults are way off approval date, and one account is permanently on late payment status which i assume means would remain indefinitely on file until fixed.
I contacted the data controllers at relevant institutions requesting update of my credit files, also including copy of chairmans report. Main protagonist advised me in july via email they accepted info provided but it could take up to 28 days for them to update credit agencies. Checked this week after latest credit file update, no amendment as yet. Obviously a few weeks after iva approval date for default i can accept, but 1 is 8 months, and the worst hasnt even defaulted grrrr.
Is it financial ombudsman or Information Commissioner for next step to request that my files are amended with correct info?
It is frustrating I know but something you have plenty of time to get corrected as, whilst you are in the IVA, it is somewhat irrelevant. Write to the ICO at the various institutions (the individual details can be obtained here https://ico.org.uk/about-the-ico/what-w ... ee-payers/).
